Subject: mm, slub: extend slub_debug syntax for multiple blocks

Patch series "slub_debug fixes and improvements".


The slub_debug kernel boot parameter can either apply a single set of
options to all caches or a list of caches.  There is a use case where
debugging is applied for all caches and then disabled at runtime for
specific caches, for performance and memory consumption reasons [1].  As
runtime changes are dangerous, extend the boot parameter syntax so that
multiple blocks of either global or slab-specific options can be
specified, with blocks delimited by ';'.  This will also support the use
case of [1] without runtime changes.

For details see the updated Documentation/vm/slub.rst
